My thought here is that it's necessary to use a parser generator that
can generate backtracking parsers, or perhaps to have some readahead (so
we can see if the next line matches "^revision " before deciding whether
we accept the separator.

The former of these is of course really hard but would be a Good Thing
for other reasons as well. The latter is the one that's more likely to
get done... Harold, are you willing to try tackling one of these, or do
I add it to my list?
